Due to the hectic schedule of a college kid traveling home to see 'rents and eat tons of food… I decided to relax, and take a 4 day break from lifting because I didn’t know of any gym in my hometown. I didn’t let it get me down (partly because of my overwhelming love for thanksgiving).
Well, back to my collegiate home, I thought it befitting to get right back to the gym. Well, my squat is 25 lbs heavier now! This really makes me wonder if I was working things too hard? I don’t do full body, just splits so I thought I wouldn’t overtrain anything…
This makes me wonder about the westside training method which incorporates breaks in training ( I think )
Anyone take breaks? How frequent? How long?
